I think I'm going EBC when I do the brake swap. The price on the USRs are reasonable.
Faded brakes means you need higher temp pads or bigger rotors, not slotted rotors. Assuming you are actually talking about brake fade and not boiled brake fluid.

Yes, briangle, tell us how did it feel? Was it spongy or was it still hard and you felt like you couldn't slow down?
